Proven Winners launches scholarship program

June 20, 2014 -  By

Proven Winners wants to support college students by introducing a $15,000 scholarship program.

This program, launching this year, will award scholarships in three areas:

  • The Proven Winners Innovations in Plant Breeding Scholarship ($5,000);
  • The Proven Winners Innovations in Horticultural Marketing Scholarship ($5,000); and
  • The Proven Winners Grower Excellence Scholarship ($5,000).

Scholarship applicants must be enrolled in a four-year university and be at least a sophomore during the 2014-2015 academic year. Masters and Ph.D. level students are also eligible. Applicants must be enrolled in horticultural science or related fields, and they must hold a minimum GPA of 3.0.

To apply for one of these three scholarships, each student needs to submit a cover letter that details the scholarship for which they are applying, the name of the university they are currently enrolled in, the degree they are working towards (including any minor degree), their current grade level, target graduation date, contact information and a letter of recommendation from a current academic adviser or professor. Students also must submit a 750-word essay, detailing what they want to accomplish in horticulture.

Questions, along with application materials need to be submitted to Kerry Meyer, Proven Winners, by July 15 via email at kerry@provenwinners.com. The company will choose and notify winners by the end of September.
